Description:
Frank Weston Benson (American, 1862-1951) Down Stream, 1925 Watercolor and pencil on paper 16 x 20 inches (40.6 x 50.8 cm) (sheet) Signed and dated lower left: F. W. Benson / 925 PROVENANCE: The Milch Galleries, New York; Mr. and Mrs. William Ewing, New York, acquired from the above, circa 1940; By descent to the present owner. In The Sporting Art of Frank W. Benson, Faith Andrews Bedford notes about a related painting: "Shortly after selling a painting to Morgan Wheelock, a friend who was a shooting companion as well as a major collector of his work, Benson was invited to Wheelock's home to see the canvas hanging. Benson spent the night and had breakfast the following morning in his host's dining room which contained a number of Benson's sporting works. Placing in his napkin in his lap, he looked around the room and said, 'You know, Morgan, I'm not accustomed to eating scrambled eggs and bacon in my studio!' Wheelock laughed and asked Benson to tell him the stories of the creation of the various works. Benson regaled his hosts with descriptions of each painting location and just who was depicted. 'And who is that Indian,' asked Wheelock, pointing to The Indian Guide. 'That's Quonah,' said Benson, 'and the dog is Skookum.'" [FIG. 5- 15. Indian Guide, l927. Oil on canvas, 32" x 40". Private collection.] (F. Bedford, The Sporting Art of Frank W. Benson, Boston, 2000; excerpt based on her 1988 interview with Mrs. Morgan Wheelock). We are grateful to Faith Andrews Bedford, author of the biography Frank W. Benson: American Impressionist, The Sporting Art of Frank Benson, and Impressionist Summers: Frank W. Benson's North Haven, for her assistance in cataloguing this lot. HID04901242017
